My daughter sent me this recipe some years ago. Whenever I am lucky enough to find pumpkin in the shops this is a dish I prefer to cook. Made today and served with Pollo Sorprisa. Tasty and so easy to make. Serves 4 as a side dish, 2 as a supper dish.
The first time I made this was when my parents came over to my house for dinner. I was making a hazelnut crusted mahi mahi for dinner and needed the perfect side dish to go with it. Well, I had asparagus and hazelnuts, so I decided to throw this together and am I glad that I did! It has quickly become one of our favorite ways to eat asparagus. The recipe came from my Mayo Clinic Cookbook.
From Bon Appetit. A little fancier way to serve asparagus than just the traditional steamed or roasted method. Asparagus is steamed and topped with a lemon almond butter that is seasoned with shallots, garlic and parsley. Delish!
Note that cooking time includes time required to steam the asparagus.
My husband's adviser fixed this salad as a side dish one evening when we went to her house for dinner. After I took the first bite, I asked her if she would give me a copy of the recipe. I feel that the salad is best eaten fresh.
I just love roasted cauliflower! It changes it from a ho-hum vegetable into a awesomely delicious one! Adapted this recipe from Rebecca Franklin from Your Guide to French Food. My sister says it tastes even better with a little lemon juice squeezed over when done.
This is a great dish we have at a local chinese restaurant that I came home and played with. They're an excellent side dish. I store some thai peppers in oil that I use in place of the olive oil but regular olive oil is fine. This recipe is great if you cube up a chicken breast into 1/2" cubes and add it also.
A wonderful way to cook winter squash on the stove top. The cider forms a tart-sweet glaze and the herbs add a fresh note. Peeling the squash seems to be easier imho if I microwave the whole, uncut squash in the microwave for about 5 minutes. Let it cool before trying to peel.
Different varieties of winter squash like butternut or acorn can be used. Some do hold their shape better than others though.
